it's a question of whether a personal interpretation of your religion would be the grounds for giving you asylum on the grounds of persecution. or whether it has to be a widespread one. for example, if germany had denied the family the ability to declare the godhood of christ, it would be no question that would be persecution of a christian on the grounds of his religion. the question of whether or not the belief that the family has, that to allow a child to go to public school is against the religion, because of the corrupt way or any religious way that that children are taught, is clearly a minority view, a personal view. and i'm extremely sympathetic with that family. and i wish it weren't being, you know, persecuted, having the threat of their children removed. but as a question of our principle of granting asylum, if the court takes it up, it's going to have to decide how widespread a belief has to be to actually be one that the united states would recognize persecution. otherwise there is a danger of a lot of personal interpretations, which it would have to defend and become a h

, the crucible of the world's three great monotheistic religions become known not as the subject of constant struggle, but as the golden city of peace and unity embodied the aspirations of israelis and palestinians alike. peace is possible because we have courageous leaders who have already taken significant political risks for peace. the time is approaching when they will have to take even more. they have shown real courage, both president abbas and prime minister netanyahu. president abbas has made tough choices. he has stayed the course, despite people in his team saying you ought to get out of here, look at those settlements, they are making a fool of you. believe me, that battle has been going on. i deal with it every week. at the same time, there has been israeli soldiers shot and killed in the west bank and other acts of incitement. prime minister netanyahu has made tough choices. just this week, he reaffirmed his commitment to a palestinian state. he said israel is ready for an historic peace. peace is possible today because the arab league has also made tough choices. for the first
. this arrived the situation in ukraine is very very complicated this is a religion that is the attitude of the european union. on one hand and the defense did you all brush up on the other. if you look back into the history ukraine was toppled. paul moss soviet union and the ticket and connie although ukraine was closely related to think on the all of the old soviet union. and the toe of the soviet union collapsed. economic ties still exist. and the ukraine he used to be and is not with a great article on call roster. on the other hand the new korean trades with your. and. the there is another dilemma. listen up of ukraine especially the us he's with me the two joined the european zone. and since we bought the old ukraine is more related to watch. and that there is a villain. whom to choose. russia all. your for the time being everything is dictated by the economy and economic situation is worsening. from that today. all the people we don't resemble the energy supply is you usually came from. usually came from russia. and the tasty bits and. this year. this is beyond the core me all you
that the negotiations have a foul stench and they are serious about fight in aggression against religion by the string cheese and hypocrites co collaborators the mm. this lady gets to court in newquay deal signed between iran and six while kyle is an historic mistake he'll say says the white house which john key's that the agreement is in the text of its key middle east and i bought not everyone in the us conquest and didn't cry to israel greeks in america meets. deal with him on the last time a david and kate and monica east if we set it on to the tp print them and they tend to seven pm from its wealth of sanctions. q a section of state john kerry says the region will be sent to as a result. this first one emphasize. actually rolls back the program from where it is today. enlarge is the breakout time. which would not have occurred unless this agreement existed. we'll make our partners in the region safer it will make it our ally israel. safer. that's why he doesn't seem to agree. this agreement is made will go much more dangerous place. i know that many share the concern of israel specially in the re
jerusalem and finding some arrangement so that jews can go to the holiest place in the jewish religion. jews are not allowed to go to the temple mount because the mosque is there. that is outrageous. faces of worship should be open to everybody who wants to worship. but israel does not allow jews to go out of respect for the muslims. tell me another country that behaves like that. your argument is more with the government of israel than with the palestinians? >> not true. >> it is true. if palestinians would accept the deal president clinton offers. the government of israel would not accept the offer president clinton offered. when he offered it, yasir arafat turned it down. some say that later he regretted that. >> you know who told him not to accept it? even though he changed his mind since? the head of the palestinians .old arafat not to accept it deal --re arguing for a >> do you know that for a fact? by asking,ind out would they accept the 67 deal offered by resin clinton at camp -- president clinton at camp david? why don't we do that? >> or the israelis, we will do that at the for him
liquor store. the question of a religion or culture, as you know, for all intents and purposes, everyone speaks english. and even qataris people, especially those that attend the american branch campuses, a lot of times they don't speak every arabica. so that issues that revolve around culture politics tend to be those that are important and the erosion of the cultural authenticity or the qatari culture rather than demands for transparency. these issues can be relatively easy to addressed by the powers that be. for example, you can ban the sale of alcohol is the government did before. or you can somehow address this sale of pork within the country. by and large, at least for the time being, given the current political economy of the country, the population tends to be a political for a variety of reasons. it does not mean that there is individual dissent that might exist. but now, is there something that the sentencing of this, as you know, the poet is accused of personally insulting a very personal type of insult against a ruling family and that becomes extremely difficult in the contex
is cheer about freedom of religion and i believe that extends to the private sector. there are numerous catholics that use birth control. so it comes down to does the catholic church care more about healing the sick or preventing birth control? >> they are asking for exe exemptions and if they don't believe that is ethical they should be able to offer a plan that is exempts contraception. >> mr. obama never mentioned he thought this was a problem and now in 2010 it is as a sign that the catholics don't love people. this is the problem with obamacare that has a one-size fits all. these problems didn't exist until obamacare was passed >> i don't think what the issue is with offering a version that employer feels doesn't violate their conscious? >> because then we get into an area of every single religious organization that is linked or every owner with a personal religious practice and if they are violated the first amendment. because birth role is provided doesn't mean everyone is choosing to use it. but there are other parts of the plan when it comes to women's health like ivf that are
no country from morocco to pakistan in which christians can freely practice their religion, end of quote. he continued, quote, there is a severe danger as we start to celebrate the feast of christmas in this country that all christianity will be almost completely erased from the traditional middle east holy land of the bible. mary to uld not take egypt because jesus would not have been safe there today. to follow on sir baldry's line of thinking, the patriarch abraham would also have a difficult time surviving in iraq having come from er, which is now nasiriyah. jonah would be hard pressed to make it to naviniva, which is now in the most you will area, and paul could scarcely travel the road to demascus in syria. the debate in the house of commons began with a staggering statistic, namely that one christian is killed every 11 minutes somewhere on earth for their faith. one christian is killed every 11 minutes somewhere on earth for their faith. the focus of the commons debate was on the persecution of christians, several noted that whether or not you are a person of faith, all should be conc
the relationship between russia and israel has been transformed. had he balance off the religion with iran in this very important position -- and russia's case -- relationship with israel? it could be very interesting to russiahis about how balance is off all of these competing demands. will make one brief comment. i think russia and the u.s. have the same interest so far as iran and nuclear weapons are concerned. nuclear powers that have nuclear weapons do not want additional powers to have nuclear weapons. it is as basic as that. i think we share that interest. this is why i think we will work together to see whether we can transform the interim agreement into something more binding. that is a good accommodation to pursue. i am a little less rosy about the overall historical relationship between russia and iran. we elected iran against russia on more than one occasion, and iran and russia have had some real problems, territorial problems throughout the years. imperial problems. so i think those who ignore history or geo-strategy would be too sanguine about the long- range prospects of th
to the holiest place in the jewish religion. jews are not allowed to go to the temple mount because a mosque is there. that's outrageous. places of worship should be open to everybody who wants to worship. but they do not allow jews to go out of respect for the muslims. tell me another country that behaves like that. >> but your argument is with the government of israel more than it is with the palestinians. >> not true. >> rose: it is true. >> no. >> rose: think of it. you're prepared essentially the mal stinks today would accept the deal that president clinton offered. the government of israel today would not accept the deal of today's government that president clinton offered. now when he offered it, yasser arafat turned it down and some days later he regretted that and then he died. >> you know who told him not to accept the deal? even though he changed his mind since maybe. >> rose: right. >> he's the one -- >> rose: he's head of the palestinian. >> he told are arafat not to accept the deal. >> rose: you are arguing for a deal that the palestinians would accept. >> i don't know tha
political religion known as jujay. >> talk about the timing of this. it's interesting that merrill newman was released as vice biden arrives in south korea. >> for the moment we don't know much about the negotiations that went into freeing merrill newman. the vice president by himself said he was not involved in the negotiations to free merrill newman. biden being in asia when you have the vice president, it's easy to make those kind of connections. he was in sea. right now south korea and north korea are not talking. the other country could have been china. it's not clear if they were pressed to help. >> talk about the relations with the united states and north korea. will this impact that relationship. >> for the moment we can't tell. it's important to keep m mind that kenneth bae is still being held in north korea. it's a major contention between the states and north korea. what do the north koreans want? they want to engage with the yates and have bilateral talks. the americans are not willing to do so unless the north koreans will give up their nuclear program. that is something they
, it's more about that thanes the about some sort of traditional belief and religion. >> we can tell, we can see around you, people are mourning, but when you talk to them, what is the sense of loss? what are they mourning? >> reporter: they're of course mourning nelson mandela, but mandela was like a mirror, he reflected back to south africa, what they want to be, what this nation imagined itself to be. perhaps an idealistic vision, an complicated often -- very visionary leadership we saw in mandel l.a. you spoke about it a little bit earlier. he really played the long game, didn't he? he looked ahead, he planned, he was a man who really thought about being a symbol of rec reconciliati reconciliation. now compare that to president zuma whose leadership and whose government seems to lurch from crisis to crisis, there seems to be an overwhelming focus on scandals or the personal enrichment whether it's linked to president zuma or those close to him. according to many south africans there's a real current in this current government of the trappings of power, of using the state to furth
traditional belief in religion. >> we can see around you people are mourning, but when you talk to them, what is the sense of loss? what are they mourning? >> reporter: you know, they are, of course, mourning nelson mandela, but just remember mandela was like a mirror. he reflected back to south africa what they wanted to be, what this nation imagined itself to be. perhaps an idealistic vision. today 20 years later, this is a very complicated, often divided at times nation. now, what they also i think are mourning is that very vision of leadership we saw in mandela. you spoke about it a little earlier. he really played the long he? he looked ahead. he planned. he was a tactician, a pragmatist. he was a man who really thought about being a symbol of reconciliation. compare that with president zuma whose leadership and whose government seems to lurch from crisis to crisis. there seems to be an overwhelming focus on scandals over personal enrichment, whether it's president zuma or those close to him. they seem to have according to many south africans, there is a real focus of this current gover
races and religion say mandela created that had unity. at an interfaith service, south africans celebrated the respect that mandela provided them. >> celebrate. it's an important model for human society. >> it lions us to be. >> down the road at an indian rally, man dela was thanked on behalf of children. 20 years ago, perussia was a second-class citizen. apartheid didn't only segregate blacks. >> we were part of the deprived lot. >> her husband suffered the same. he remembers being humiliated just for eating dinner. >> we used to go down in the evening to find something to eat. we had to say to the guy. sorry, do you sell to us? he would say, no we don't but you guys can go around the corner and you are more than welcome to buy take-aways. >> their kids have no idea what their parents went through, which is just fine for them. >> tell me about these. >> perussia shows off achievements she wasn't allowed to dream. her kids graduated from integrated colleges. one is a doctor, the other training to be a teacher. >> it's an awesome feel to go have brought up children in the multi-r

points making it hard to have religion insofar as saying happy holidays or nondenominational is somehow a war on christians. >> the whole thing is bizarre to me. if you think this is a bad war, you should see the war on hanukkah. this is war. >> i'm not terribly offended by people saying merry christmas in public places but i'm sure there are people who would like to have the ability to not have that shoved down their throat who are not christian. i don't get the whole burden of asking people to say happy holidays, it's fwe nine and fine to me. i'm jewish. who knows? >> i'm trying to go back to a serious point. >> that was a serious point. i don't get what the cost is for having people say happy holidays. >> i feel like it is part of a more insidious narrative about separating people saying liberal progressives on this side and conservatives on this side. >> nrcc shirt that said liberals say happy holidays. on the back it said merry christmas, which they sold a lot of them. they sold out of them. >> they have been using happy holidays. >> sure. the vast majority of people don't care abo
abortion so much or the issues that have been dominating in my religion so often. but talking about the old christian principles. looking out for poor people. saying the lowest person you meet is in the worst position. that basic christianity. and i was taken, in fact, he's been paying attention to that. he sure has. >> right. the key thing is while the president's not a catholic, he is a christian. and when you listen to his speeches, when you listen to what he says whether it's health care or the economy, a lot of it is based in these, the ones who are struggling paycheck to paycheck, the ones near bankruptcy, the ones who are just trying -- they're playing by the rules, they're doing everything they're supposed to be doing and yet they're still being left behind. in an economy that's rushing faster than any of us can keep up with. so i'm not surprised that the president's paying attention to pope francis. and i'm not surprised that the president feels some sort of kinship with him because they both seem to be -- and i've never met pope francis, and maybe i will one day, but i think the t
can do better and knitting mills as we look at good religion and wellness as well. >> my name is rachel gore won the academy for state health currency. what areas you mentioned the role of state. i was wondering if you could talk about what the long-term consequences easy for the different experiences people will be having from state to state. a state like new york where they've done a marketplace in their expanding a decade, consumers are having a much different experience than maybe mississippi that has a federal marketplace and aeronautics unit. speak not well, i've always thought that having remodels first aid exchanges is really a very good thing. we have the state models and we are at the are these the united states to california and kentucky in a number of states, washington, connecticut, obviously massachusetts, they've done extremely well and their performance out that to be highlighted and studied as to what it is they're doing that other states failed to do so far? the second model is the hybrid model we got partial federal involvement and partial state involvement.
the political religion is something called jujay. the question is if kenneth bae will ever be released. >> joe biden welcomed the decision and called for the release of kenneth bae, another american held captive. >> delegates from iran, the u.s. and five other world powers are prepared to iron out the details of a deal to monitor the nuclear program. talks are set for next week in geneva, and will focus on when aorses will be conducted. it's hoped a short-term deal will lead to a final settlement. as world powers prepare to sit with iran, the obama administration is opening the door to sell u.s. defense systems to allies. despite a deal with iran they pose a threat not addressed by the nuclear agreement. >> no strategy is risk free. diplomacy takes kournal, vision. our emphasis on diplomatic tools should not be misinterpreted. we know diplomacy cannot operate in a vacuum. our success will hinge on america's military and the credibility and assurances to our allies and partners in the middle east that we will use it. >> he made those comment addressing leaders at a summit in bahrain. >> prepara
out of hand. you would not dismiss religion out of hand. religion has nothing to do with science, but it is something people believe very deeply. you have scientists arguing that the foods are safe and acceptable. on the other hand, you have people arguing on other grounds that even if the foods are safe -- and they are not willing to accept that they are -- but even if the foods are safe, they are not acceptable on other grounds. these two points of view go past each other with no meeting of the minds whatsoever. the academy was giving a vote to science-based look into genetically modified foods to say they are ok. other people would argue differently. would think labeling solve a lot of these problems than they should have been labeled from the beginning. let me say one other thing about that. the first company that was going to develop a genetically modified food was working on a gmo tomato. i have in my files at nyu copies of the label they intended to use on those products. a great big tomato with genetic modifications was right on the front saying this is the pride of calif
in south africa today. millions of people, regardless of their race, color, or religion, unified in prayer, song, and remembrance in honor of nelson mandela. today's national day of prayer and reflection marks the beginning of a week-long program of mourning in his memory. let's go right now to nbc's michelle koh zin ski, who's in the middle of it all. michelle, a good evening your time. what are we seeing? >> reporter: hi, alex. right here this was a fence lined with some flowers outside the mandela property. now it has become several large hills full of flowers lined with people. you can imagine in churches around the world today mandela was mentioned. here today people were basically encouraged to do their own thing, to reflect on the melgszage of this champion of freedom. but in enormous numbers, people felt much better gathering together, includingmembers of mandela's family. it had the feeling of a sunday revival. here a few hundred gathered in a tent at mandela's offices, anything but quietly reflective, full of joy. >> we don't mourn quiet. we need to celebrate. we need to celebrat
think back to the 1990's, various european countries in particular of standing with historic co-religion, the idea that catholic portions of europe were standing with the co-ops and others, the serbs because of old religious orders. i think we have all learned from that, so that was not completely accurate depiction of the 1990's that we have to be extraordinarily careful. we are all skirting around the proper ways or the ways of describing a very complex situation. the u.s. does not want to be seen in the middle of a sectarian conflict. it gets to the whole issue of the sunni-shiite divide, the role of christians, the role of other religious groups in the area, because this is obviously something that is three much focus on in the context of the middle east peace process, and we have to be extraordinarily careful about how we deal with that. this is why we are not seeing the same kind of tone of the debate in the u.s. they do not want to have a particular constituency. there are other dimensions of the that we want to mention about the refugee process. we've seen a whole slew of her spe
of marriage and all of that. i agree that you can't force a religion. you certainly cannot legislate a religion to accept it, but there is the reality, today is, that there's going to be probably 17 states by the end of this year who are waiting for the illinois law to get signed and new mexico, supreme court case to be decided, but there could be up to 17 states by the end of this year in the next several months that have gay marriage. that number is going to grow. it's not going to decrease. so this debate is on the brink of becoming moot. >> i mean, sure there are some social costs. we look at countries such as benevolence or sweden, the cohabitation rates have risen. less people getting the. more people are putting marriage off. >> is that because of gay marriage? >> harvey i think so spent it's because straight people don't want to get married. they just want to shack up spent i think we've made into a quaint social custom instead of, i think our policy would be better served strengthening marriage and making sure every child our gay speedy so how does gay marriage we can -- how
is saying now. and a tip on a group of people giving generously in the name of religion to those who wait on us every day. these stories and much more all "happening now." well, right now on capitol hill, a house hearing on obamacare. welcome to a brand new hour of "happening now." jenna: and the chairman of the house committee saying that the president has developed a dangerous expansion of power and making up the law as he goes along to get what he wants when he wants it. >> from obamacare to immigration, the current administration is picking and choosing which laws to enforcement the president cannot refuse to enforce a law simply because he dislikes it. >> the administration's decision to defer action against particular individuals is neither unusual nor unconstitutional. jenna: two sides of the story there. we have more on this story. there certainly are a lot of compliks at play but today's first witness is warning this issue is not just about politics right now. what did they have to say? >> that's right. constitutional law professor argued today this is not a, quote, turf fight be
of the parliamentarians, they religion against their to actually have a nuclear weapon. it's not like there hasn't been a debate within iran itself in regards to nuclear weapons program. it's not like all of iranians have said they want to move forward with nuclear weapons. they have been divided with their own society. they have that constant debate themselves. i think the iranian people made a choice when they decided to elect a more moderate president this time than they had previously. and so part of the voices of the tonian people are starting stare up also. they want to -- my hope is, and we will see whether or not they abide by the agreement and move forward, but my hope is that they would want to be a part of the international community. they cannot be part of the international community if in fact they have a nuclear weapon. as i said, it is important that russia and china has a stake in is also because here are individual countries who previously had not had a stake in this. important for them to have this p5+1 come together. if iran really wants to get back to the international committee, th
their religion is to destroy us. host: we will have you respond to that. negotiating in a religious way? guest: he is right to a great extent. we arenians have said the great evil and they're going to wipe israel off the face of the earth. in the middle eastern culture, it is looked upon with high regard to get the best deal possible no matter what it takes, that includes lying. that is one reason the gulf states like to work with the u.s., because we are honest and transparent. they like doing business with us as opposed to their partners or even the communist chinese. they like doing business with people that are honest and transparent. that is an underpinning to these negotiations. once again, if you are willing to blow yourself up and commit suicide in order to blow up other people, you are not a rational person. up other people, you are not a rational person. that is to you are dealing with when you are dealing with uranian's. host: -- iranians. host: you are saying that all middle eastern countries are this way? part of the middle eastern culture to get the best deal that you can, wheth
that jerusalem, the crucible of the world's three great monotheistic religions becomes non-not as the subject of constant struggle, but as the golden city of peace and unity embodied the aspirations of israelis and palestinians alike. peace is possible because we have courageous leaders who have already taken significant political risks for peace. the time is approaching when they will have to take even more . they have shown real courage, nd primesident abbas a minister netanyahu. the president has made tough choices. he has stayed the course, despite people in his team saying you ought to get out of here, look at those settlements, they are making a full of you. leave me, that battle has been going on. i deal with it every week. time, there has been israeli soldiers shot and killed and other actsk of incitement. prime minister netanyahu has made tough choices. just this week, he reaffirmed his commitment to a palestinian state. he said israel is ready for an historic peace. because possible today the arab league has also made tough choices. for the first time, they came to washington. they
the relationship between russia and israel has been transformed. how do you balance off the religion with iran in this very important position -- and russia's relationship with israel? it could be very interesting to watch this about how russia balance is off all of these competing demands. >> i will make one brief comment. i think russia and the u.s. have the same interest so far as iran and nuclear weapons are concerned. nuclear powers that have nuclear weapons do not want additional powers to have nuclear weapons. it is as basic as that. i think we share that interest. this is why i think we will work together to see whether we can transform the interim agreement into something more binding. that is a good accommodation to pursue. i am a little less rosy about the overall historical relationship between russia and iran. we elected iran against russia on more than one occasion, and iran and russia have had some real problems, territorial problems throughout the years. imperial problems. so i think those who ignore history or geo-strategy would be too sanguine about the long- range prospects

interpretation of religion. we are to the first world trade in the bombing in 93, remember. the people who are getting pummeled in bosnia were muslims. it was a source of concern to people across the world. i received calls from both the pope and the king of saudi arabia, asking me to intervene and bath and. and i wondered whether that was the first time they've ever been on the same side of an issue. to call broke said it was the problem from. and when we were once discussing how everything happens at once, the aftermath of somalia, haiti, bosnia, toilet cracked one of the stress lines the whole time he worked in the white house. he said you know, sometimes i really missed the cold war. bosnia in some ways became a memoir for the 21st century. it was the first conflict, which reminded us that the end of the cold war basically took the veil off this mh we were privileged to have come even when it didn't fully comport with reality that there was a bipolar world and is dangerous otherwise come with all these nuclear weapons hanging around, at least it was organized. even our spies helped eac
